DASH Astro


About DASH

DASH Astro is a new astronomy society based under the dark skies of the North Suffolk coast.  


We have been operating since Midsummer 2013 and have built up a group of likeminded members who cover various levels of competency, from absolute beginner to keen amateur, and who are all invested in the development of their astronomy knowledge and skills.  


This is something that we strongly support at DASH as you will see from our mission statement.  




We believe in passing knowledge forward by setting up a knowledge web, this involves members sharing the knowledge and skills that they have accumulated with other members. So, if someone teaches you something pass it on!
